In the summer of 1787, Alexie embarks once again on a ship to Acadia from England. This time he is accompanied by his older brother Théo, who had already made the journey with their father three years earlier. However, a mutiny will separate the two brothers again. Alexie wakes up alone on an unknown shore. The worst is not behind him, for he is captured by pirates who seem to emerge from beyond the grave. Will the noblewoman Carolyn, also a captive, be of any help? Or will it be the fearless servant girl Marie-Ange?
